with what you found on the ground? >> no. that's a disgusting statement. they've not been educated -- they've not been executed with surgical precision although maybe a terrible hack surgeon if that's your definition. but there are numerous people, numerous incidents of absolutely outrageous civilian casualties and the other thing that we must understand is even if the drones are technically accurate and there may be some question about that how are they getting the information as to who to attack with drones? well they're ex-pakistani military are bribing people in the pro inses to give them names and -- provinces and that's how and who the drones are being directed at. just like in guantanamo, people are turning in folks who they have grudges with or who are their enemies. we must think about that. these incredible instruments flying from the sky attacking and killing are based on a neighbor turning in someone in another village because they have a drudge. >> john: bribes leading to bad intel are all too familiar in this long and destructive conflict. 20 seconds left. do you think sir th

come with a dream of living a better life than their children. getting an education, working hard. in many cases starting up their businesses and living the american dream and we ought to find a way to make that more possible. now, that also means we live in a society of rules and so we need to abide by the laws that i think there are practical ways to abide by those lawses. and any ethnic group no matter where they come from, should live the american dreams and what it stands for. >> greta: what do you do about those illegally here in this country? have you thought about that? that's one of the thornier issues. >> well, clearly there's got to be a well thought-out process in doing this, a balance between respect for the law and all the talk about securing the border, which is important, is that we've got a mess when it comes to the federal agency that controls immigration. we've got people who want to come in and work hard and live the american dream. i don't care if they come from mexico, canada, europe, africa, they want to come here and add value, work hard and live the americ

paying lots of taxes relative to their income, and they need help. we need more education work being done in this country. we need a solid immigration policy. we have to look at climate change. there are a lot of things that the american people are expecting, and the republican party, as they get ready for the next election, really has to focus on some of these issues and not ignore them. >> chris, what's sad to me about that is that by virtue of mentioning the phrase climate change, it's almost like colin powell has kicked himself out of the republican party. this party used to play ball on that issue. now they're denying the actual science behind it. they have swung so far right, and my question after all of this, after that interview which was incendiary and was very much a line in the sand for the gop -- >> it's history making. >> -- when will the republican party admit they have a problem? because every time something like this happens, there is a doubling down, there is a defense, there is an attack on the messenger. there is a problem here. the party is in crisis, and someone has g

to articulate and educate the public to the extent that we have without her leadership. >> let's talk more about what we have seen over the last couple of years. the national journal pointing out that abortion fight moves to the states while obama picks supreme court justices believed to support abortion rights and back federal funding for planned parenthood. state legislatures passed a record-setting number of restrictions over the past two years. talking about the midterms that happened in 2010 where overwhelmingly, republican controlled house got their hands on being able to craft more old-fashioned and very myopic laws that were trying to cut the rights off of women to have the rights that they had already had in place. how has that changed since this last election and how has it even changed the conversation, because it seems like we're having the same old conversations once again. >> again, you are exactly right, thomas, that the 2010 elections, we saw a lot of anti-choice politicians elected. they didn't run on this issue. had they run on it, they would have lost. but the fact is they ran
